West Brom are the side to beat in the Sky Bet Championship and at the moment it’s looking hard to suggest that anyone other than Leeds United will be able to stop them winning the title.
At the end of the day, promotion is all that matters and the top two are setting such a pace that the sides below them are going to have to go sum in order to try and win the title.
With that in mind, then, it’s a good time to be a Baggies fan right now and, evidently, that can be said if you’re a player too.
With someone like Slaven Bilic in charge, the players have someone that is getting the very best out of them and that can be said for midfielder Jake Livermore.
He’s proving a real force in the middle of the park and the Croatian boss offered this message about him via social media recently:
"I want to praise his leadership and his quality, the example he sets to the team and the job he is doing for us."

Fans have been quick to praise him afterwards, too, so let’s take a look at the best of what has been said:
Outstanding yet again yesterday. If Pereira was a 10/10, Livermore was a definite 9/10. Having a fantastic season

Early in the first half against Swansea we seemed timid in the final third and hesitant to shoot. Then big Jake Livermore on a few occasions leads by example gets the ball, drives it forward and takes a chance and shoots!
I turned to my dad and said thats leadership right there💪🏻

Slowly eating humble pie where Livermore, Bartley and Kanu are concerned, been a total 360° where they are now compared to the last few seasons respectively, can only be down to hardwork and a top gaffer in Slav , long may it continue

Slowly becoming a hero is this guy. Working his socks off and has the ability to unlike past Albion heroes who filled that role.
